I had the privilege of viewing the majestic Vic Falls from the air (the flight of the angels) and from the ground. It's wonderful and truly one of the seven wonders of the natural world. The hour or so trek through the rainforest is quite an easy one and requires you to wear comfortable shoes and a poncho or rain... More

It was by far one if the most exhilarating and liberating experiences of my life doing the bundgy jump off the bridge over the mighty Zembizi but putting the adrenaline aside, the breathtakingness of the majestic fall was so amazing that in its thunderouse falls I saw and felt this amazing sense of calm and beauty and when I witnessed...

The Victoria Falls are definitely one of the wonders of the world. We visited in winter where the volume of water is supposedly less and the spray is minimal to moderate - and thats what made it so amazing. It is so powerful and so beautiful and majestic. Because of the proximity of the paths to the water and the... More

Whether you view the Falls from the Zimbabwe or the Zambian side, it doesn't much matter, although better to do both. It is one of the great sights in the world and if you are close, don't miss. You can hire waterproof smocks, but why bother? Just get soaked, it is warm enough. Take care though, because there is little... More

Want a great andrelin rush - then go and zip line and gorge swing at Victoria Fall on the Zimbabwean side of the falls. Well organised venue run by Wild Horizons. Friendly staff and very good clean facilities. Highly recommended

One of the most stunning sights in the world. Rainbows play in the mist from the falls. If your budget reaches to it try a helicopter ride over falls for £99 pp. Take or hire a really waterproof coat, walking along the Falls path means you get drenched from the mist.

We visited Victoria Falls in July 2014. It was an a amazing sight with a rainbow over the Falls. somewhat misty but was able to see the entire Falls and took many pictures. If you visit South Africa, Botswana,Zimbabwe be sure not to miss this spectular sight.
